Bill, one day, if you haven't already, plan a visit to Vancouver, Seattle and Portland. Some of the nicest places on earth. Looking forward to the starting line much?
David, I spent nearly two weeks in Seattle and Whidbey Island with my family at least 15 years ago. I loved all if it and will plan the trip you describe in the near future. Actually, Sarah and Kylie were planning that exact trip for late June but it has shifted to five days in New York City.
